Jason Mellor helps Bath City claim point at Boreham Wood
A fine goalkeeping display by Jason Mellor helped Bath City stretch their unbeaten away run to four games after a low-key 0-0 draw at Boreham Wood.
Mellor’s outstanding first-half save to deny Michael Thalassitis was the highlight of a resolute display from City, who had some decent possession, but failed to test home goalkeeper James Russell once during the game.
Apart from an Elliott Chamberlain curler which did not have quite enough bend on it, the opening stages were all about Boreham Wood with both Mark Preece and Gethin Jones forced to make fine clearing headers.
Mellor’s best moment came in the 20th minute when he threw himself at full-stretch to somehow claw away a curling Thalassitis shot, which seemed destined for the top corner of the net.

In the second half, substitute Lewis Toomey thought he had given the home side the lead, but his close-range header was ruled out for offside.
City rarely threatened towards the conclusion of the game, but Mellor continued his fine form at the other end, tipping a 90th-minute header from Thalassitis onto the bar to ensure his side went home with a point after a dogged display on the road.
Bath are at home to Dorchester tomorrow (7.45pm).
